I am unable to access YouTube on http. But I can access the same on an https.

When I executed the command wget https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=StJLvbPIvTw it returned the following response:-

You could try something like youtube-dl –  slhck Mar 4 '13 at 9:20
youtube-dl is giving the following error:- [youtube] Setting language [youtube] StJLvbPIvTw: Downloading video webpage [youtube] StJLvbPIvTw: Downloading video info webpage ERROR: "token" parameter not in video info for unknown reason –  vipin8169 Mar 4 '13 at 9:22

Found from some other Question:- Use the URL savefrom.net and type in https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=StJLvbPIvTw . Press Download button and you can download it in any format :)) No matter whether you access it via HTTPS or HTTP

you can download the chrome app also from here>> http://en.savefrom.net/user.php enter image description here
